    Clusterin in Alzheimer’s Disease: Mechanisms, Genetics, and Lessons From Other Pathologies.

    Clusterin (CLU) or APOJ is a multifunctional glycoprotein that has been implicated in a number of physiological and pathological states, together with Alzheimer’s illness (AD). With a outstanding extracellular chaperone perform, extra roles have been mentioned for clusterin, together with lipid transport and immune modulation, and it’s concerned in pathways frequent to a number of ailments similar to cell demise and survival, oxidative stress, and proteotoxic stress. Although clusterin is generally a secreted protein, it has additionally been discovered intracellularly beneath sure stress circumstances. Multiple hypotheses have been proposed relating to the origin of intracellular clusterin, together with particular biogenic processes resulting in various transcripts and protein isoforms, however these…
